While Ruislip has excellent transport routes including the main line railway station, the M40, and M25 into London, it is also near Heathrow Airport which can be a noise factor when deciding where to live. Flats and semi detached properties aside the small number of properties that come up for sale have meant the price of homes in this sought after residential area have held their value. Four and five bedroom properties can easily sell for £750,000 and above with even two bedroom houses attracting sales of £350,000 at the higher end of the market.
Ruislip is located within the London Borough of Hillingdon and benefits from the various London Underground tube connections that enable residents to commute to London for work or leisure. The population of the area is around 50,000 but without a wider range of properties available in the rental sector, the rental price of £750 a month for a one bedroom flat maybe seen as high for an area more than 24km away from London. This is duplicated in the sale sector with one bedroom flats costing £150,000 even at the budget end of the market.
